Mick Jagger has taken up ariel yoga at the age of 73. According to ArielYogaLondon, with the weight of the body supported students learn how to achieve proper postural alignment through relaxation rather than effort, thus producing a peaceful state of mind and a wonderful feeling of lightness in the body. Ariel yoga is anecdotally said to (more research into this area is needed - we will seek some out and share it with you in a future post):

-Alleviate muscle tension, neck & back pain - a chiropractor in a sling!

-Promote increased joint mobility & health by taking the weight off them for a change.

-Increase the circulation of blood, lymph & energy - literally, refreshing you.

-Stimulate the release of happy hormones (seratonin & dopamine) - for that drug free feeling of elation.

-Improve concentration & mental functioning.

-Strengthen the core - essential for good spinal health and posture in this desk-bound age.

-Allow performance of advanced yoga inversions without back or neck compression.

-Enable the holding of challenging yoga postures longer and in correct alignment.

-Create better body awareness and agility - or grace of movement.

-Promote the learning of new skills: a creative & artistic fitness experience that's fun & enjoyable.

Has anyone tried this? I would love to hear about your experiences!
